You do know about the overpriced CS controversy right? It's been estimated it will cost $40-$50 a month to play end game because items in the cash shop will be mandatory to play correctly. Than there is the matter of the runes to improve your character at end game. The best Rune costs $7,000.   That's right, Seven THOUSAND American dollars.

The gpotato community is in an uproar about this to say the least. Although the devs are promising to rectify the situation they STILL have the CS open with these ridiculous prices. If they don't do something quick I thing that Allods will go under, no matter how good it looks.


This CS controversy is already significantly costing Allods many players and potential players. If this isn't resolved by the next patch (preferably sooner), I think Allods will critically hemorrhage what is left of its players.

I for one never had any intentions of playing such a game, but I certainly have been observing this train wreck as it happens.

7000 bucks?!?!? Are you kidding me?




Good Lord!!! That's like one person paying 14.95 a month for 39 years!!!!


thats peanuts, i have already stated in a previous post that ROM has a player on a German server that spent 26000euro on a weapon THATS over $35000.

It's a whole new game.

2/26/10 10:10:00 AM#43

One of the things I like most about Allods is that most of the items in the Cash Shop are world drops. Although they may be the rarest ones in the game, they do drop.

I played for the earliest phase of the Closed Beta tests and found it extremely addictive. Yes, the quest grinding was a bit tedious at times and could seem overwhelming when you had 10+ markers on you world map but you could knock all those out and then reap the rewards. The classes and races like all other games are hard to be really original. But I do like how they switched around what archetypes are available to certain classes. An Orc Reaver(Paladin)? Yes please.

One thing that disappointed me was the lack of loot that dropped in the earliest "instance", XAES. As a level 10 I was hoping to bring in some phat lootz but the only drops I got was from the last boss. I know that the Reputation Quartermasters and quests give you all the gear you need but I was looking forward to getting a bigger stick in XAES.

What made me laugh the most was the astronomical Russian influence on every aspect of this game. The /actions have audible Russian coming out of your character and every sign/billboard in-game is in Russian text. Pretty much every name in the game, except for the arisen, is Russian-based or Russian-influenced. It's not a bad thing it just caught me off-guard.


While this is the most polished of the F2P games, I just hope that gPotato doesn't try and make it P2W. There are a lot of veteran gamers and people who actually enjoy the challenge of the game to where they too will lose interest when those with that extra bit of cash twink themselves out with Cash Shop uber-loot.

I'm of the opinion that no matter how much the CS changes, or if FoD is eventually dropped, this game will be forever tainted. I told many, many people about this game. I was honestly excited about it before closed beta even started. And when I actually got in? I was immersed. Sure, it wasn't the most original gameplay, but the world had style! It wasn't your typical anime grinder. It wasn't  your plastic-looking-trying-very-hard-to-look-real-but-failing-miserably EQ2 clone. I'm guilty of being a WoW fan simply because I really enjoy the graphics style. And Allods was pulling me in based on that. I quested for a few levels, I had a lot of fun, and I told even more people about the game. About just how awesome it was. When new closed betas came out, I forced people to grab keys. I even got ready to play with some friends when open beta started up. And then all the hoopla over the CS started.

I don't think I've been this appalled at a game company for a very long time. This game has a lot going for it. Enough to be well worth a subscription. As I said, it's not exactly original in gameplay, but it's pretty well rounded and fairly polished - more polished than many high profile games released the past few years. Now though, the taint from this CS debacle will turn many people away. The CS that they came up is EXACTLY the sort that everyone complains about, but not many games actually have. It's a shining example of what not to do in a F2P game. And I honestly felt that this was a F2P that would change peoples minds about the genre, and maybe we'd actually see some more quality games go this route. But if barely anyone ends up playing this because of the bad rep it'll get from the CS, what will that tell other companies? That a high quality game like this isn't worth it? Will we just continue to get the same grinder crap with no style fed to us?

This whole mess worries and saddens me. They would have been better off just asking 15 dollars a month to start with, but I suppose that just wasn't enough money for them...

Yet again the shop will ruin the game. Deffinately in endgame. I wont pay 40eu a month on wather of death to play endgame. I rolled 2 lvl40chars in cb but it stops here. Well im off again, looking for a descent mmo till SW:TOR kicks in.

there is one major thing that i don't like about the game - and that is the length of combat. it takes "ages" to kill the most simplistic beast, at least at lower levels. never managed any char past lv8 or so, i just got too bored. Guess I am a victim of more fast paced combat.

oh, and as all freebees, the female characters tend to have less clothing resulting in more armor value.... interesting even, that if you choose to not display armor, some female races have stay-ups .... not that I mind being a guy, but really, what's the point.

another interesting small fact: anyone notice how both new gpotato titles start with an A, hence ending up on top of many game-listings.... clever. Not just them I guess. Aion, Aika, Allods, Alganon.


Definately had the same issues with combat being soooo slow.  I got bored very quickly.  I almost always play a hybrid melee healer (paladin-like) but this one drove me nuts. 

Anyone know if the recent changes have sped this up a bit (aside from the silly cash shop/parfum stuff)?  That was my only real hangup, but it was enough for me to move on.

lols, everyone's comment are so long, all I'm going to say is brother plays this and it doesn't look to bad even though some of its features are clearly from other mmos.

There are so many things I like about Allods, the whole Spell Jammer vibe, the models ( if Blizzard was smart they would hire whoever did Allods undead models) the fact that dungeons aren' t faceroll zerg fest, but all that is killed by insane people who have the BS notion that all Americans carry 10k around as pocket change, and honestly that is what it all boils down to...I got so sick of hearing "You’re American your rich" when I was in Prague a couple years back...this ignorance is going to make a really good game fail completely.

This sword here at my side dont act the way it should
Keeps calling me its master, but I feel like its slave
Hauling me faster and faster to an early, early grave
And it howls! it howls like hell!

Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

One aspect that was not mentioned in a preview,was how bad the initial graphics are.I almost deleted the game instantly,the graphics start out one grade above pixels,then improves to the lowest standards you expect from all F2P models.Character models are unique in some cases,i can see people getting giddy over that,it wore off on me rather quickly,played the Gibberlings[3 little guys].Also the game starts and plays extremely linear,exactly like a single player game.These are the preview things that stick out.

When you actually get into the world ,nothing changes much exactly the same npc>npc questing to see how fast you can make your level number rise,if i remember right,you had to return to a npc to actually get your level rise?.You need to finish certain quests to be able to move on,so yes linear continues.Make a couple jumps to ship off the bounce pad,and that is about as unique as the game gets.The game early on at low levels already has the feel of being a hard driven cash shop game.I do not care about levels usually as i prefer game play over watching a level number rise,but when the game offers little to enjoy,you hope that maybe a new level area might bring something unique.The game felt like it was going to be a slow leveling game,not because of content but to drive that cash shop.

WoW-clone is a pretty derogatory term these days. It symbolizes a lack of innovation, a blatant copying of concepts, and in general is used to associate a game with a player's angst toward the genre they love and hate. And while there's little doubt that Allods Online will be called a WoW-clone, my early impression of the game is that it's quite well-done, with a style all its own, and the potential to become the best F2P game available. Of course this is just an early impression after a few hours spent in-game, and who knows what issues more time playing will bring to light. But so far I just have an urge to get back to playing.

Now if you don't fancy Blizzard's mega-hit or games along the same line of content, I would steer clear of Allods. It's very much a traditional MMORPG, even if it is highly polished and playable. If you're tired of this type of game or just plain avoid titles like it, you can probably stop reading here. Still with me? Good. Allods Online is definitely deserving of a download and trial, and since it's free, you've got nothing to lose except time.

Read the Open Beta Impressions.

Now you see what happen when American developers port a mmo from other countries. They think in term of how much cash I can rake in off of dumbass american players. Thats their way of thinking and how they see you as a customer.

Allods has some nice things, but in general it was a grind fest!

Long walking distances to get to a camp of 10 mobs that 100 players want to kill..

I played for several days! Liked the grafik, but the animations seemed slightly of timing

and the general gameplay seemed pretty repeatable to me! (kill amount X)

I played 1 character on both sides to level 10.


But if you haven't tryed it, Try it.

I went to sign up for the beta for this game last month.  They refused to take a Comcast email address.   I just shrugged and moved on.   Will probably never try it.

It looks like you are the one upset about my comment. Your logic buffles me, you say you use the term "clone" so vaguely because others use it just as vaguely? Hmmmm, talk about unending cycle of broken logic. Please rephrase your single sentence-paragraph, It seems you are so upset, you are not making any sense (particularly the red part).

By the way, an EXACT match to WoW is not a clone, it is a COPY, furthermore, it would not be possible to create such a copy due to legal issues.  I take your personal opinion as your personal opinion. however, in my personal opinion your personal opinion of a term "clone" is too ambiguous for the reasons specified in my previous post.

So, were you just venting some e-rage or did you actually wanted to discuss here? Because from your inability to address points that I was making I get the feeling you only wanted to vent anonymously.

This need to be reviews. Not looked at for a couple of hours. This game is brilliant despite what people say. I haven't spent a penny on this game yet I am enjoying it to the max.

If it's a WoW clone, and it's free, why are you still playing WoW?

Becasue it's not a freaking clone! It's probably the most original Fantasy MOORPG there is...
